The release of Boot Camp by Apple is a major milestone. This opens the door for lots of people that are tied to Windows but want to try something different. I can already see that my next Windows/Linux machine will be an Intel Mac. My mind is spinning with the possibilities. Hello gamers…

I was wondering about the hazy skies lingering over the island the last few days. I thought maybe the volcano on Anatahan was acting up again, but it turns out the haze is just pollution blown in from China. The trade winds petered out a couple days ago, and this smog settled in around the Marianas. I’m hoping for clear skies this weekend, though this haze does make for some lurid sunsets.
